Tonya Engst discusses the new, third generation iPad in relation to her newly revised Take Control of Your iPad. Not everyone is lucky enough to get one of the latest models, however, so Tonya has take great pains to make sure this edition of her book addresses every iPad owner, whether they are getting a used or hand-me-down device, or just walked out of an Apple Store with the latest and greatest. Tonya talks about how she uses her iPad, her thoughts on it as a Mac replacement, why some see getting an iPad as a necessity in a technology-laden world, and more.
